There is something so disturbing about this video of Indian occupying soldiers taunting a small Kashmiri boy. The little guy is lucky they didn’t shoot or beat him. But he’s not more than 6 or 7 years old & clearly feels the weight & anger of humiliation & repression without fully grasping its danger to him.
Kids this age should be playing ball with each other, not locked indoors so they won’t get hit with pellet guns or tear gas. They should be socialized to solidarity & community, not to fighting for their very existence.
Ending the occupation is a children’s welfare issue.
